    Xavier, did you consider the Dell Ultrasharp 27″ before you bought the Apple Cinema display? I’m trying to decide which I’ll prefer for working with my photographs and would appreciate you sharing any insights you might have.

      I did consider alternatives, including the Dell Ultrasharps, but the Cinema Display better suits my needs at the moment. I was worried about the glossy finish of the Cinema display, but it’s fine since I no longer have an office with a skylight. I really like how the Cinema Display doubles as a docking station of sorts for the MacBook Pro since there’s a USB cable and MagSafe tip alongside the DisplayPort tip. Really elegant.
      The other issue is that I wanted something right away and didn’t feel like waiting.
      The Dell Ultrasharp is a better value if you’re looking at $ and cents or if you’re solely a PC user. I don’t think you’ll go wrong with either. If you have the $, you might want to check out HP’s DreamColor displays as well.

      I thought I’d chime in and say that I’ve used Dell Ultrasharp displays (24″ and 27″ models) for a few years now and photography and find them to be excellent. The HP DreamColor displays might be better – I don’t know, I’ve never seen or used one – but it’s hard to beat the price/performance ratios of the Dell displays…especially when you score them on Dell’s “Days of Deals” promotions.

    Check out HP’s DreamColor displays if photography’s your primary reason for getting a new display. They’re pricey, but gorgeous. The Dell monitors are great as well, but not the same caliber. I settled on the Cinema display because I’m using a MacBook as my primary notebook now and I liked the ‘docking capabilities.
